At Georgetown, our teachers use the writing workshop approach. During this writing time students are given daily time to write, shown models of good writing, and provided with responses that help them improve their writing. Writing workshop is a valuable and favorite time of the day. Watch this movie (created by our incredible reading teacher, Mrs. Bast) to hear our students’ thoughts on writing. WRITING
Many, many students and parents have volunteered to participate in Georgetown’s service project, “Covering Young Heads to Heal Young Hearts”, a tribute to Grace Thatcher. On Monday, May 18th, an all school assembly will be held at 2:30pm to honor your this grand gesture of donating hair for young cancer victims. A local salon, Salon Nouveau, as well as other licensed stylists will be present and will cut and/or style the volunteer students. To view a list of those donating hair, visit our PTC blog.
We would like to offer up another scavenger hunt to help you visit our many blogs! This time around our scavenger has a spring theme. If you would like to participate, follow these directions below:
1. You must locate 10 spring-like clip arts from 10 different blogs. These range from flowers, to bunnies, to eggs, to bugs, etc.
2. When you find the clip art, create a list of all ten. You will send me this list in a comment section from this blog. Remember, we will accept your entry if you have the name of the clipart and where it was found: : 1. Daffodil-Art Blog 2. Rabbit-Megan’s Blog 3. Bird-PE BLOG, etc.
You can only use a blog one time. You must find 10 different pieces of clipart on 10 different blogs!
3. You have until March 30 to enter. We will draw out one winner on April 1. The winner will receive an Spring Basket full of goodies.

On Tuesday, March 17 we held two Kindergarten Round Up meetings at Georgetown. We welcomed the parents of 101 new students to our building. If you have an upcoming kindergartener, and you have not yet turned in your registration please do so as soon as possible. We will continue to take enrollments throughout the spring.

Sleep is critical for memory…especially when it comes to the complex thinking required in today’s learning. It is critical for children to get adequate sleep each night so that they can perform at their best level each day at school and at home. To learn more, read the Connect With Kids feature article on Sleep and Memory.
It is March 17 — the day we kick off our first official preparations for the 2009-10 school year with Kindergarten Round Up. We will have two identical presentations, offered at two different times of the day. Parents can choose to attend the 10 am or 7 pm session. Information about the daily schedule, programming, and registration will be shared. The sessions will be held in the MPRoom, which is just inside the front door. I am looking forward to welcome kindergarten parents to Georgetown.
As you know, we have been hit with many viruses these past four weeks. Connect With Kids, a website I check frequently, discusses the symptoms and treatments in this week’s feature.
